The average laboratory uses 5 times as much energy as the average office building.* Sustainability can no longer afford to be seen as a trend, and the development of sustainable practices should be incorporated into many areas, including labs.
We recently attended Lab Innovations‘ Lab Live: Sustainability event, which highlighted leading sustainable practices, products, and initiatives within the laboratory industry. Thank you to Andy Evans of Green Light Laboratories, Martin Farley of UCL, and Harleen Chima & Robert Hunt of Kimberly-Clark for delivering their hugely valuable respective sessions.
There are many ways of improving sustainable practices within the industry – from using and maintaining lab equipment effectively, through to reducing water usage. Get in touch to find out how EECO2 can help you optimise your laboratory for energy efficiency.
